The Lad Classic are a Toronto, Canada-based rock group currently signed to Swift Kick Records and featuring members Paul Stevens (vocals), Josiah Whitney (drums), Mark Rynkun (bass), and Ben Healey (guitar). While this free grab of the song “Cadillac Jack” is an acoustic version of the original, that doesn’t stop the band from showcasing their sound and energy; one that makes you look up and take notice.

March 18th, 2014 marked the eagerly anticipated release of The Lad Classic’s EP, Thunder. Featuring the ripping lead single “Cadillac Jack” and production work handled by Damon de Szegheo (Serena Ryder, Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch, Craig Cardiff), the quartet are on the verge of a very busy year – music videos, touring, and a ton of promotion are what they have in store. So, if you’re looking for some energy packed old school classic rock with modern influences, then check out The Lad Classic!
